A Rank-Based Sequence Aligner with Applications in Phylogenetic Analysis

Figure 1

The precision-recall curves of the state of the art aligners versus the precision-recall curve of the two LRD aligners, when 10,000 contaminated reads of length 100 from the orangutan are included.

The two variants of the BOWTIE aligner are based on local and global alignment, respectively. The LRD aligner based on hash tables is a fast approximate version of the original LRD aligner.
